What CIO’s could do — and why they are unhappy

These two articles, both from the same issue of Baseline Magazine, seem to need to be taken together:

  • Four Ways CIOs can Impact the Bottom Line is about a Gartner report recommending that CIO’s get entrepreneurial and how to do that.
  • A CIO’s Lot is not a Happy One discusses the reasons CIOs are among the least satisfied of executives, which in large part is that they “want to be someplace where they feel their opinions are valued, where people listen to what they want to say and where they have the opportunity to express a point of view”, Dave Opton of ExecuNet is quoted as saying.

Perhaps a CIO who can embrace the first article’s thoughts can avoid the scenarios painted in the second article.
